In this episode I talk about some of the personal experiences that lead me to choose a career in the field of school psychology. Additionally, I briefly touch on my educational background. You will get to hear about an incredibly inspirational teacher that I was blessed enough to meet in middle school, whose voice and words became a sense of inner guidance and inspiration throughout my life.
